Philip Guston's about-face

In the mid-1960s, the American painter Philip Guston made what looked like an abrupt U-turn. After rising to prominence as an Abstract Expressionist in the decade prior, Guston decided that abstraction was no longer working. He turned, instead, towards the cartoonish, representational style for which he is probably best-known today. How did he get there? As he insists in this clip, his change was not so radical. Audiences can make up their own minds at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Humlebæk this summer, where “Philip Guston: Painting Smoking Eating” is open through 7 September.
